The Television
Author: Joseph Ogbonna


What manner of innovation so ingenious,
electronic box made to serve our audio-visual demands.
This square shaped screen that comes to life
by just a switch,reduces the size of the globe in
every living room.
Entertains it's audience every length of time they please.
What comedy so laughable!
what obscenity so carnally delightful!
and what gory tales so horrific!
could this magical innovation not willingly render?
Still it relives the eventful past
for generations unborn.
